Sanctions hit Iranian farmers hard

Ancient local traditions like cultivation of roses likely to be jeopardised.



    With talks over Iran's nuclear programme breaking down, the country is likely to face even tougher sanctions.

    Farmers have been hit hard. Limits on exports could even jeopardise Iran's 2,500-year-old Mohammadi rose harvesting and rose-water production tradition.
